KY-004 Module Circuit Diagram

Schematic of the ky-004 key switch module circuit is shown below.

KY-004 Module Interfacing with Arduino

Connection diagram of the KY-004 key switch module with an Arduino is shown below.

Connect the power pin (middle) and ground pin (-) of the ky-004 module to +5V and GND on the Arduino, respectively. The module signal pin (s) connect to digital pin 3 on the Arduino.

Arduino Source Code

The following Arduino sketch for the KY-004 Key Switch Module.

Set the LED on Arduino pin 13 as the output and the signal pin of the KY-004 module as the input. Using this interface, when the button is pressed, the module will send a high signal to the Arduino, which will turn on the LED.

int led = 13; // Define LED on Arduino interface
int signal = 3; // Define KY-004 module interface
int val; // Define a numeric (boolean) variable val
void setup()
	pinMode(led,OUTPUT); // Set Arduino LED pin as output
	pinMode(signal,INPUT); // Set KY-004 module signal pin as input
// Start the main program loop
void loop()
	val = digitalRead(signal); // Read the KY-004 key switch module
	if(val==HIGH) // If the button is pressed, turn LED ON
